Femur fracture types. Artwork showing the location of three types of fracture of the femur. From top to bottom, moving along the femur, they are: a transcervical fracture (fracture of the femoral neck); an inter trochanteric fracture (also called an intracapsular proximal fracture); and a sub trochanteric fracture. Fractures such as these require surgery to repair and pin the bone, and in some cases to implant an artificial hip joint.
